Bucs With Decision Coming Soon on RB Williams

Williams

 

The Buccaneers will have a tough decision to make when it comes to running back Cadillac Williams and what role he will play this year with the club. The St.Petersburg Times is reporting that the team will place him on the PUP – the dreaded physically unable to perform list. This means that Williams, who has been working out hard to get back on the field after last years injury, will not be able to play till at least week seven.

The paper points out that the team wants to play it safe with Williams, and that is not a bad idea since the team still has a feature back in Earnest Graham re-signed that can carry the load to give Cadillac more time to get back to 100 percent. The Bucs need to make a final decision on Williams before their first practice on July 26th at Disney. He can be activated from the list anytime during the preseason. Another reason the team may put him on the list is that he won’t count against the 80-man cap on the active roster.

The Bucs, other than Graham, can always turn to the returning Warrick Dunn and Michael Bennett for carries to take the load off of Graham. If the team puts Williams on the PUP list, they have to keep him there for six weeks, then will have three additional weeks after that to watch him in practice and then do one of two things – activate him to the roster or put him on injured reserve.
